JinJoo Lee, DNCE guitarist, is your next celebrity crush


Here's what you (probably) don't know about DNCE

WATCH: You might not know it yet, but Your Next Celebrity Crush is DNCE guitarist JinJoo Lee.

She and her DNCE band mates won Best New Artist at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

Those in the know, especially DNCE fans, have been crushing on her hard of late.

They love the way she commits to her live performances.

You don't have to be a great dancer to dance. You can dance however you want to, and still have so much fun.
JinJoo Lee, DNCE.com interview

And true to her band's name, she dances like nobody's watching.

Lee appears poised for world domination, one face-melting guitar solo at a time.

She can rock a pair of quirky shades like it's NBD. (She told MTV she owns at least 52 pairs!)

Some rockers have zero chill but Lee has all of it as the only woman in an otherwise male band.

That chill extends to a wardrobe that's equal parts fun and funky.

Style-wise, Lee told MTV she considers the cartoon "Sailor Moon" to be her biggest influence.

And there's a good reason she looks like she was destined to sit in this throne of guitars.

Teaching herself guitar at age 12, Lee moved to L.A. at 19 and made an immediate impact.

Joe Jonas isn't the only pop star to be impressed by her skills.

Lee's also teamed up with Selena Gomez, Jojo, Charli XCX, Jordin Sparks and CeeLo Green.

DNCE - Cake By The Ocean

Of course, she's also a chart-topper. DNCE's breakout hit "Cake by the Ocean" topped Billboard's Adult Pop Songs chart in June 2016.

(Some lyrics in this video are NSFW, but who cares if everyone's dancing?)

It's insane. I came here as a visitor and became part of this awesome band, doing what I've been dreaming of. I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
